Hi from London

Hi all.

I got directed to this forum by a colleague well experienced in e-paper.

I'm really here on behalf of my wife who has a slightly alternative application for an e-reader. She's a publisher of old-fashioned paper books and as a consequence has to lug around huge numbers of bulky manuscripts. She saw the news surrounding the release of the Amazon Kindle & wondered if such a device would save her aching back & a few trees in the process.

So for me, it's time to research not DRM or the availabilty of already published content, but the ease of conversion of manuscript formats and the readabilty of the various devices.

Who knows, introducing a device in the heart of a traditional publishers might help sway opinions there & see some more contect published in e-form.
